    Thank you @Little Miss Sunshine.
    Yeah i feel like a sook for crying, i think it was mostly from adrenaline and being so embarrassed by the situation, im just glad DS wasnt hurt, only shocked, althought i dont appreciate the words she chose to ise infront of him (i swear but nothing like that!)

    I'm 35 so my tolerance level for this kind of crap is non existent. also, I don't care what anyone else thinks (especially rude people!!) so I would've given as good as I got.

    that's incredibly rude and downright nasty.

    if I overheard someone talking to another person in public like that I'd have spoken up. did anyone else within earshot stick up for you?

    don't cry about it, that kind of behaviour says nothing about you and everything about the woman who was rude to you.

    Big hugs, you get them everywhere unfortunately. I bet if you said ANYTHING at all regardless of what it was, it would have aggravated the situation.

    I'm sorry that happened to you, you were in the wrong place at the wrong time. X

    I would have done nothing. I've seen so much in my 10 and a bit years raising kids that I know now life's too short to bother arguing with random crazy people in shopping centres no matter how much they get up in my face.

    I just walk away and thank the stars I don't have their life.

    There were a few people standing around, no one said anything, one lady whispered to (im guessing her partner) and an elderly lady gave me a sympathetic look/smile. I didnt notice anyone else as i walked pretty quickly out of there, my DF says i shouldve 'given her an ear full', but im way too reserved for that tbh. Im just glad i only got yelled at (raised her voice) and nothing more. Too many crazy people in the world i think, but it seems to be more where i live,theyre everywhere!

    At your age, I probably would have done the same thing. I would have been too shocked to say anything.

    What a vile, angry individual

    At your age I would have done what you did. (The best solution)
    At my age I probably would have lost the plot and made the situation a lot worse.

    As previous poster said doing or saying something to crazy person like that and someone is probably going to get hurt. You don't want your child involved in that sort of confrontation. They might get hurt.

    yeah the other side of the argument is of you say something back, it has the potential to aggravate the situation and you don't really know what you're dealing with. as a pregnant person, I probably wouldn't say anything back that was too over the top as I'd be concerned she could get physical and it's not worth getting hurt just to give someone an earful.

    non preg I would be much bolder but you had your ds with you, it's hardly worth getting into an altercation with a loony esp in front of your young son.

    don't think of it as you scurrying away to cry in the toilets. you probably came across as having taken the high road and maintained some class. that makes her look even worse and it probably riled her more that you didn't bite back.

    she obviously has a crappy life and takes it out on innocent strangers.

    Wow, what a rude, crazy biatch. Hugs to you. Some people really are just awful. I prob would not of said anything. ..people can be very unpredictable. Hold your head up high as clearly you handled the situation with some class.
